Anhedral a.k.a. Euhedral and anhedral: Euhedral crystals are those that are well-formed with sharp, easily recognised faces. The opposite is anhedral: A rock with an anhedral texture is composed of mineral grains that have no well formed crystal faces or cross-section shape in thin section. Anhedral crystal growth occurs in a competitive environment with no free space for the formation of crystal faces. An intermediate texture with some crystal face formation is termed subhedral.
